NBA free agency 2014: Jordan Hill will have multiple suitors, according to report

Stephen Dunn

The Lakers big man will have teams lined up for meetings once his contract expires.

Unrestricted free agent big man Jordan Hill is expected to have multiple suitors, including the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets. A return to the Los Angeles Lakers isn't out of question either, though Hill will seek a long-term deal, according to Sean Deveney of Sporting News.

The Lakers drafting power forward Julius Randle with the No. 7 pick seals up one of frontcourt spot, but Los Angeles still needs to address the center position. Pau Gasol will also test the free agency market, though both sides are said to be open to a return.

Hill is one of the NBA's best rebounders and could be a valuable addition off the bench for any team pushing to contend. His $3.5 million contract with the Lakers expires 9 p.m. PT Monday night. He averaged 8.6 points and 6.8 rebounds per game, mostly off the bench, for the Lakers. He was highly effective in limited minutes, though, as his Per-36 stats project him as a 16.3 points and 12.9 rebounds per game player.

Los Angeles acquired Hill in a trade-deadline swap with the Rockets in 2012 but he struggled to find a consistent role under Mike Brown or MIke D'Antoni over his 2.5 seasons with the Lakers.
